Drove a 2001 Porsche 911 Turbo. This was not the S and had a hand over 400hp. First, the good: handled well and was responsive despite the tiptronic auto that everyone seems to hate - I enjoyed it. Also, it's still a looker even though people bitch about the runny egg headlights - people need less free time to complain. Now the bad: to be clear, this is a 17 year old car, it's expected to have some issues. This one, however, had a bevy of issues that the dealership did not mention in advance. It had paint peeling off on the rear left quarter panel. It had a weirdly scratched up interior - looked like the previous owner took a set of keys to the whole interior (repo?). The wood trim was cracked as well. Also, on the test drive I found out that the active spoiler didn't work when I hit 75mph like it was supposed to. A fun spoiler broken warning light came on. Lastly, I found out the dealership had poured some money into it already because the drivetrain was leaking. Overall disappointment on a car that could have been awesome. They wanted $40k for it with about 50k miles.
